The facts: The St. Louis Rams finished the 2011 season with a 2-14 record after suffering a 34-27 defeat to the San Francisco 49ers in the Edward Jones Dome.

The upside: Even the worst defeats tend to feature a bright spot or two. Looking ahead: The Rams are searching for a new coach and general manager. They hold the second overall choice in the 2012 draft.
